John Edgar Shobe, Jr.

January 16, 1945 ~ May 1, 2019 (age 74)

"I had a good time," said John Edgar Shobe, Jr., a true custom classic and hot rodder at heart, before passing away peacefully on May 1, 2019 at the age of 74 with his two daughters by his side. He was preceded by his brother and lifelong friend, Lawrence Everett “Bub” Shobe.


John was a talented creator of custom cars that he built from scratch with his two strong hands. His Plymouth, Roadster, Model A, Impala and '49 Chevy are the monuments he built in his lifetime. He believed that if something needs to be done, you just do it. And if you are going to do something, do it right. In his life, if something was broken, he would fix it.  


His memorial service will be June 1 at 2:00pm at his home in Largo, FL. His '49 Chevy will be at Biff Burger in St. Pete on May 31. Donations can be made in his honor to the SPCA of Tampa Bay or to Cure IBM. 

Donations may be made to:
